Feria Smokey Pastels Smokey Blue Fail

When I finally decided on a Feria Smokey Pastels color, Smokey Blue, I was so very disappointed that, like all Feria Boxed colors, it did not deliver.  I was given this deep bold blue, not the silvery pastel blue shown on the box.  Each and every time I have tried Feria boxed hair colors, it’s…

Glam Rock Glam Goth Eye Makeup

I decided to bring out my inner Glam Rock, Glam Goth, GLambert, and recreate that iconic black and metallic shimmery eye make-up seen on many a rock star, from Adam Lambert to BVB’s Andy BIersack, to name a few.  I used Ulta’s Abbey Road Palette with MAC shader, angled shader brushes, and Enchanted Eve Blending…

DIY TieDye Pastel Hair

For my Parsons Teen Vogue Assignment, I created a Pinterest with the same title…

The view from up here is fabulous.  I feel as if I’ve gained a whole new perspective.  If you read my post, A Platform for Platforms, you’ll know that platform shoes and sneakers have long been a staple of alternative style gurus of London, America, and Asia of course.  Although they’re nothing new, the trends…

DIY STYLE: Shit By Me

      Can you really make clothes and jewelry you’d actually wear? …yes, you can.  I’ve been wearing my own designs for years, from graphic t-shirts to clothing I’ve sewn myself.  Lately I’ve been making my own unique jewelry to suit my alternative style, mixing dark and gothic with cutesy and kawaii…I feel drawn to…
